The 19th Century
The movie "Jane Eyre" gives insightful information on thechallenges faced by orphaned children in their struggle to findpurpose in life within an extended family setting. I enjoyed themovie because I was able to learn how lucky some of us are in life,having parents who help in addressing our needs. Jane Eyre, thecentral character is a ten-year-old orphan who lives with hermaternal uncle’s family. The Reeds are cruel to her, especially heraunt, Sarah Reed. The three children are also abusive towards Janebecause they do not recognize her as part of the family. Being thecentral character in the film, I would have helped Mrs. Reed andother remaining children from John Eyre`s inheritance. I think Janemarried Edward Rochester, the love of her life, and they lived ahappy life because Bertha, his insane wife, had died from the fire.
I believe that the soft and hard bustle of the 1870s and 1880srespectively was a way through which women wanted to express theirfemininity. Industrialization led to the adoption of sewing machinesin the fashion industry. The clothes were quickly sewed since theyrequired little labor as result of machines. Moreover, there was themovement of wealth from the countryside to cities.
The evolution of menswear between 1800 and 1850 was relativelyunder-represented. A significant percentage of men wore their clothesfor a long time. When they showed signs of tear, they threw them away(Montagna & Carvalho 247). On the other hand, women replacedtheir clothes frequently. Menswear has evolved based on shapes,styles, and trends. At the beginning of 1800, the cutaway coat waspopular and was replaced by double breasted tailcoat (Montagna et al.249). The clothes were day and evening wear. However, in 1825, thefrock-coat gained dominance as daywear while tailcoats were preservedfor evenings (Montagna et al. 253). By 1850, the tail coats hadfurther evolved to a court tailcoat that was not nipped at the waist.
